Northampton Saints lock Juandre Kruger has targeted three trophies before leaving Franklin's Gardens to rejoin Bulls at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old wants Premiership, LV= Cup and European success before returning home to South Africa in a bid to make it into the national team.

"It was a tough decision," he said, "with Saints improving every week.

"It's a career decision, I want to play international rugby. But the three cups would be the best leaving present."

Kruger, who joined Northampton in 2008, has been a regular in Jim Mallinder's team.

"Credit to the coaches who've helped me in my decision-making and forward play," said Kruger.

"They develop players very well at Northampton."
